Format Your PC less then 10 Minutes (II)

About 1 week back I have give out a tutorial on “Format Your PC less then 10 Minutes“, this method are very easy to use and require to type in few command only, and a WIN PE’s CD

A lot of reader does not know what is WIN PE, it is call “Windows Pre-Installation Environment”. This is actually is use by system builder to pre-install the OS into each new close PC. I have upload the Image file already, any one need may sign up my Feed, and I will send the link to you on the Email you sign up.

Other then that Microsoft training that I attend, this time i have experience it my self. I do the process for my client PC, so that next time when the client come back, it is easy for me to re-format the PC

The time arerunning very fast, at 1st, it show 11 min plus remaining when my progress is 2%, but when reach 23% the time remaining is 5 min plus, mean that it take less then 10 min to create the image file, so to deploy it.

After the whole process done, I am curious on the file size of the Image file. so I went to check the property of the C Drive, it cost 4G plus

But after compress to Image, the image file just cost 1G plus, you may burn it to DVD or store it in your hard drive.

    Nice post. Maybe you’ll let us know how to recover the PC back to previous settings right after format it. I always have trouble having to restore my PC back to it’s original condition. Plus I need to install back the programs that I had. Took me at least 3~4 days to complete it. Recovering back the programs and settings are far more troublesome then formating.
